4.08/5  rDev +2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

On-tap at Lord Hobo for their Vertical Epic event on 12/12/12. Part of Flight "E" (BA variants of 08, 09, 10). 5oz serving in a flight glass.

A- Translucent golden copper, nice head that recedes at a fairly average pace and leaves decent lacing, not a ton of carbonation. Similar to regular 10, but slightly darker.

S- Muscat grapes, sauvignon blanc wine, fairly strong floral notes coming from the chamomile, a hint of tartness, and a slight presence of oak. Slightly above average aroma strength.

T- Muscat grapes, sauvignon blanc, a faint grape tartness, a bit floraly from the chamomile and an oak presence that balances nicely with the floral presence. Finishes with a lightly sweet muscat/sauvignon taste. I really like how the oak balances with the other flavors going on.

M- Medium, not a whole lot of carbonation but fits beer well, smooth, goes down very easily.

O- The barrel-aging on the 10 added a nice touch and french oak barrels were definitely the right type of barrel to perfectly compliment the other flavors in the beer. Like the 09, tasting them side by side you could tell how the barrel accentuated the flavors nicely and actually provided more flavor unlike the 08. I enjoyed drinking this beer and I almost appreciated it just as much as the BA 09.
